First of all, I recognise how hopelessly difficult it will be for other users to find this question based on a StackExchange search. Such is the nature of image-based questions.

In any event, I'm looking to identify this connector, in order that I can buy another one. For reference, in this application at least, it's part of a 3.6V battery charging mechanism.

  • \$\begingroup\$ You can make the question more searchable by describing the object in words - "what is this white plastic latched two-pin connector with 4.2 mm spacing." \$\endgroup\$ Jul 15, 2016 at 20:39

I believe that is a 2-pin Molex "Mini-Fit Jr." nylon line plug

There are other, generic, manufacturers - but I'm providing a specific name brand as I don't see that any of the generic versions have a specific name. Searching for ATX style or EPS style may help.

    \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, but which Molex nylon line plug? Molex is a huge manufacturer with countless plug types. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I believe @Trashman is correct, it looks like a Molex Mini-Fit Jr. to me (I use them all the time at work). It is either that or a Micro-fit (It's a bit difficult to tell the scale from the image) but I am pretty sure it's a mini-fit. \$\endgroup\$

Looks like one of these: -

Available from here. You'll probably need a crimping tool or maybe you can solder the wires up to the crimps successfully. Also from here

I think there are many brands, so I cannot give you a specific name, most of the time I see such connectors on RC car batteries. If your are looking for purchasing one I recommend you to check RC Hobby or model sport shops.

  • Such as this might be suitable.
  • Or this.

  • Or this from another shop.
